tweet me @alivelshi. have a great weekend. hello, everyone. thanks for joining us in the cnn "newsroom." i'm fredricka whitfield. harassing e-mails and david petraeus was having an extramarital affair. it's part of the fbi investigation that led petraeus to resign but top lawmakers, both republicans and democrats, are demanding to know whether they were informed about that investigation in a timely fashion. cnn's athena jones has more. >> reporter: as more facts emerge about the circumstances that cost cia director david petraeus his job, so do the questions.
>> i have questions about the whole matter. >> like who knew what, when about the fbi's investigation into an investigation that his biographer, paula broadwell, sent harassing e-mails to a woman close to petraeus. according to an official, it was that probe that caused the investigation of petraeus and broadwell. a phone call from the fbi came on election night. but it's unclear when the fbi probe began. >> the fbi director had the obligation to tell the president or the national security council at the earliest date. it has been going on for several month and yet now it appears that they are saying that the fbi didn't realize it until election day that general petraeus was involved. it just doesn't added a up. >> reporter: among other questions, why weren't key lawmakers told sooner? the house and senate intelligence committees weren't
informed until friday. >> are you going to investigate why the fbi didn't notify you before? >> yes. absolutely. i mean, this is something that could have had an effect on national security. i think we should have been told. >> reporter: not everyone on the hill was totally in the dark. house majority leader eric cantor said an fbi leader told him about the affair and a possible security breach in october after the investigation had begun. a u.s. official says the communications were never compromised and he was never the target of the investigation. another issue, petraeus stepped down days before he was supposed to testify before a senate committee about the attack on the u.s. consulate in libya. acting cia director michael morell will testify instead but some republicans weren't pleased. >> at the end of the day, the one thing that has to happen in my view is we need to get to the bottom of benghazi.
i don't see how in the world find out what happened in benghazi before, during, and after the attack if petraeus doesn't testify. >> cnn has not been able to reach broadwell for comment. now, the woman who alergely received those e-mails has been identifies publicly and, of course, still questions remain over just what those e-mails contain, fredricka. >> what can more can you tell us about paula broadwell and how they met general petraeus. >> she is a married woman of two and she met him and started researching this disser tags that later turned into a book and contacted him via e-mail and person and that's where it all began. >> athena jones, thanks for that update from washington. >> thanks. >> so general petraeus was originally scheduled to testify
before congress. you heard athena reporting on that. he won't, though lawmakers may still compel him to at some point instead acting director michael more rel will take over. michael hayden explains why. >> i know some people are saying that they were hopeful that general petraeus personally would testify but, frankly, you want the agency to testify. you want someone who is knowledgeable about the event, what the agency knew, what the agency did. and mike morell is fully qualified to do that. now, at some later date they may want general petraeus to come back in and give his personal impressions. i understand that. but the hearings go on and cia will be there telling what it knew about that event. >> and michael morell is filling in as cia director until president obama chooseses a permanent replacement. israel fired a warning shot into syria today after a stray mortar shell came across the
border. the shell hit an israeli post in the golan heights area. jerusalem has filed a complaint with u.s. forces operating in the area. meantime, opposition groups have agreed to form a new inclusive body that could transition into a new government. and closer to home now, in new york city, thousands came out to honor vets for the veterans day parade but sandy survivors were not forgotten. donations were collected for them during this time. the storm is now to blame for 43 deaths in new york city. more than 38,000 residents there are still in the dark. cnn national correspondent susan candiotti introduces us to an elderly woman struggling to survive. >> reporter: all bundled up, she manages a smile before the 70-year-old -- yes, 70, makes a twice daily climb up six
flights, dragging four gallons of water and a grocery cart and a bucket to her apartment. is it okay if i help you? >> yeah. >> reporter: you're using this for what? >> flushing the toilet. >> reporter: i can't imagine how you carry that and this. this is the third floor, right? do you need to rest? >> yes. >> reporter: catch your breath. >> you're going all the way up to the 16th floor? >> every day. >> reporter: i'm going to try to hold this lady's bag up to there, too. watch the bucket. i don't know how you ladies do it. okay. this is floor five. up we go.
up we go. okay. we made it. this is the section this floor. all right. how is your breathing right now? >> tired and -- >> reporter: you're okay? i'm tired. i'm tired. it's really rough. >> reporter: what is it like at night? what are the sounds that you hear? what goes through your mind? >> i just try to my mind and just focus on god. >> reporter: what was it like the night of the storm? >> the light, television go out, just like that. >> reporter: and then what? >> darkness. no light. no water. >> reporter: albina, i have to tell you, i'm feeling your hands right now, your hands right now are frozen.
>> yes. >> reporter: they are so cold. and this is during the daytime when there's light in here. >> i put this on and -- this is this top. and then i put this over it. and then i put pants under and i put this over it. and then this comforter -- >> reporter: after putting on all of those layers, underneath all of the comforters and blankets, is it enough? >> i keep warm. >> reporter: you manage to keep warm. well, i'm glad it's working but how long do you think you can go on like this? >> i have no idea. that's for the bathrooms. >> reporter: when you're asking them how long will it take for the power, what do they say? >> they are not saying anything. they don't know. they say they don't know. i'm not hearing nothing. >> reporter: albina, what is going through all of this? >> god is strengthening me.
giving me strength. >> reporter: god is giving you strength? >> yes, god is giving me strength. the only god giving me the strength, because if it wasn't him, i couldn't go through this. god is good. >> reporter: albina, i wish you a lot of luck and i hope the power comes back soon. >> thank you. >> reporter: all right. take care. >> susan candiotti is joining us live now. susan, how is miss williams doing right now? any sign of when power comes on, running water, any of those things? >> reporter: well, they have some running water, a little bit anyway. but the good news, fred, is this. >> what? >> reporter: they have electricity back again. they do have light. we are still waiting for word whether they have heat. late last night the power came back on and they are now able to run at least one of four elevators in that complex which
largely houses senior citizens. so that's a big help right now and they are very grateful for that. still again waiting for word as to when they will get the heat turned back on. but it took them, fred, at least three certification levels to prove to the utility company that it was all right to switch the power back on and we have no explanation yet from the utility company about why it took so long to make all that happen. we're still waiting to find that out. >> so now what about the rest of the neighborhood? what about her neighbors? >> reporter: well, some buildings do have power but others do not. it is still a mess here in the rockaways, where we are reporting to you now. for example, on this street there is no power. you can see the sand piles because the ocean is right in front of me and it's a mess. however, the good news is this. we have seen this day and this weekend a ton of volunteers out here from all kinds of groups that have sprung up from
organizations to others to people coming together to help these people as far away today from philadelphia. we've seen the national guard here on the streets delivering more food and water to the people as well. so help appears to be on the way but they really need that power back on. >> they do, indeed. it is still very cold. thanks so much, susan kond yot tea, for joining us from the rockaways. we'll get back to you in about an hour. thank you so much. monday morning quarterbacking? a lot of republicans are doing just that as they struggle to find out why mitt romney lost the election. one says finger pointing hides a bigger truth about the gop. ... ♪...
the blame game. it's being played right now by republicans upset about the outcome of the presidential election. some blame mitt romney. others are pointing the finger at the gop overall claiming the party should have doubled down on ideology and gotten more aggressive. my next guest has a very different theory. cnn contributor david frum has released an e book, why raomney lost and what he's doing about it. david, thank you. >> thank you. >> you say it hides a bigger truth, that republicans have become estranged from a moderate america. >> let's contrast two periods in american history. the first period, the one we just lived through.
in the past six presidential elections, the republicans have won a majority of the vote one time in 2004 and then barely. in the previous six presidential elections, from 1968 through 1988, the republicans won five times and in those five -- and if you look at all six, including the ones they lost -- or the one they lost, they averaged 52 1/2% of the vote. so from '68 to '88 we have a majority party and from '88 forward we have a minority party. and that's the core of the problem. it's bigger than the problem than any one candidate and it's getting worse and worse over time. >> don't call this a close election. instead, it's more so a challenger throwing away a sure thing, not necessarily an incumbent kind of hitting the nail on the head and reaching the electorate and convincing them that he's been doing the right thing? >> well, president obama did not talk a great deal about his
record and he did not talk a great deal about his plans. he ran a campaign that was very powerfully and effectively negative. again, this a republican challenger. i painted the republicans as frightening, unacceptable. unfortunately, he had a lot of cooperation with the republicans in making that case. this is still a middle class family and yet the big majority of the republican people said that they were not in touch with the republican class. you have to ask, what did republicans do to show middle class america that that was the mistake? it was not a middle class-oriented platform and hasn't been for a while. so why romney lost, i go through the reasons that people were put off from the republican party and i say this is a deeper problem and we need to make a deeper connection and this involves a much more economically inclusive message, a more culturally modern message. and it means a message that takes into account the
environment, which is an issue of rising consciousness for younger voters. >> so cultural more modern message being more inclusive of social issues because the gop was hitting the message home that this election is based on nomics. it's economic driven. a better approach would be to more conscientious of the social issues that people want to hear about, want their leaders to touch on? >> the gop, although it used -- it talked about debt deficit, it didn't really have an economic message. the economic message was to divide the country between people who were worthy americans, the 53%, and people who were unworthy americans, the 47%. and to say -- the message was, look, what is happening here is the worthy americans are being taxed to support the unworthy americans and we want to put a stop to that. the problem is, of course, this is not a true picture of american life. that, in fact, the biggest group
of people who are supported by government are older people. that's where most of the money goes and older people through medicare and social security, they get about -- from the federal government, about seven times more money as people under 19 do. and you understand why that's so. those are the republicans voters. the model -- the attempt to create a cultural war over who gets what from the federal government, that's what was obsolete. an economic message would be to say, here are our ideas for ak se accelerating economic growth and putting people back to work and that was part of the message that was really missing. in another book that i wrote during the last cycle, i offered very concrete, detailed solutions on how you might do those things. the message of those things is that the party has to get away from the past and it has to stop blaming large parts of the country. now, my joke is, the first step to recovery is stop insulting so
many people. >> didn't the party try to do that after 2008, especially with the corporation or more of an incorporation of the and it par tea party movement? >> the tea party movement was older americans defending what they get from government by demanding that everybody else gets less. that's the essence of the ryan plan. everybody over 55 keeps what they have. all of the costs of deficit adjustment will be borne by everybody under 55. republicans do much better with voters over 55 than they do with voters under 55 and we justify this by saying older voters are worthy americans and younger voters are unworthy. that's not how you do inclusion. inclusion begins by saying, we're not going to get everybody's vote but we embrace everybody's spern. i think what i was struck by and i've written a lot about this, you have to draw a distinction.
talk radio is not the republican party. but the republicans are desperately afraid of talk radio. one of the viewers goes on the air and talks about sandra fluke, the law student who testified before congress in the way that rush limbaugh talked about her. you have to understand that every woman in america who uses birth control when hears herself being called terrible names that rush limbaugh called that woman and when the republican party is afraid to stand up to him, remember, this is something that took place -- >> because some people interpret that is as being, they are one in the same. shares the same principles as the republican party and that's what brings us, in large part, maybe to this juncture? >> the republican party is afraid of talk radio. it's not the same. talk radio is -- mitt romney gottens and tens of millions of votes. >> yeah. >> there are probably a million people who listen to talk radio. one is much bigger than the other and yet it's afraid.
>> david frum, thank you so much for hearing from you. people can read even more about your thoughts behind that premise. thanks so much. good to see you. >> thank you. all right. they have risked their lives and sacrificed and they've come back with lessons for us. coming up, wisdom from u.s. veterans. [ male announcer ] introducing the new dell xps 12.
president barack obama honored the veterans on this veterans day in arlington national cemetery. he then said in his speech this was the first veterans day in ten years that no americans are serving in iraq. the president also said u.s. troops who served abroad in iraq and afghanistan should always be able to rely on support from the u.s. government. so what have we learned from the veterans in your life? >> so interesting. we talk about all that they have given. one way is to pay attention to the major life lessons that
these people who have sacrificed and gone into this situation and brought back. we reached out to people like you and asked what are the biggest life lessons that you have learned from the veterans in your lives and i want to show you some of the answers we got. never take life too seriously, laugh often, speak your mind unpoll jet clee and vote. that's from brooke villarreal, a daughter of dickie sykes. and appreciate the time you have with people you love. no matter how much something hurts, you can survive. this one, folks, is from donna douglas. she gave us this picture with her husband, michael douglas, who was an army sergeant in ' '70s. their oldest son was killed in the iraq war in 2008. a couple more. you can always find the good in someone or something. that's from michael vaf nau.
they are both serving right now. and finally, don't waste time worrying from kim mcconnell, wife of jonathan mcconnell who served in the iraq war. we'll have more in the next hour. it's become a nice and beautiful discussion people are having online and on ireport about what they have learned if they wouldn't have otherwise known so deeply from the people who made the sacrifice. >> so often people keep those thoughts to themselves or they are sharing that with just the immediate family or friends and this is a great forum in which they can share with so many people. >> a lot of people don't know about veterans. what do you don't know about our veterans. >> thank you so much. voters have sent the same balance of powe back to washington. does that mean more gridlock for the president? george mitchell is with us in the newsroom on how the sides can work together. tdd#: 1-800-345-2550 let's talk about your old 401(k).

barack obama is to meet with republican and democratic leaders of congress. they want to avert the year-end fiscal cliff that we've heard so much about. after they returned a gridlock congress to capitol hill and mr. obama to the white house, both the president and house speaker john boehner vowed to find some common ground. >> well, clearly the deficit is a drag in our economy and we can't continue to spend money that we don't have. i don't want p to box myself in. i don't want to box anybody else in. i think it's important for us to come to an agreement with the president but this is his opportunity to lead. >> i want to be clear, i'm not we hadd wedded to every detail of my plan. i'm open to compromise. i'm open to new ideas. i'm committed to solving our fiscal challenges. but i refuse to accept any approach that isn't balanced.
>> joining us now is a man who knows all about bipartisanship and compromise. former senator george mitchell is joining us. you were majority leader from 1989 to '95 during a time when senators and house members were actually friends. and i mean those on opposite sides of the party. so do you think the president and the house speaker's words this go around really will lead to some compromise or has a new page been turned here? are you encouraged? >> i'm hopeful about it. the day i was elected majority leader, the first person i called was bob dole, a republican leader, and i went to see him and suggested to him that these are tough jobs and we are to work together as best we can. we're going to disagree but i told him i won't surprise you. i won't criticize you personally in public or in private. and for six years, while we disagreed almost every day on a variety of issues, never once
did a harsh word pass between us in public or in private. we got to know each other better. so making it personal makes a difference. you know, you tend in any area of human activity to work better with people you know, like, and respect. i think a little more of that would be helpful. secondly, i think they ought toll do it in a manageable way. the most important thing is working together is not to set unrealistic goals. don't suggest to the american people and the press you're going to solve it all in one fell-swoop because that can't be done. that will only set you up for failure if you don't achieve that. this can be done in a deliberate way that takes one step at a time. and finally, of course, we have to recognize this had is a very large, diverse country, divided in the middle. nobody can have their way 100% of the time. i've heard members of congress get up and say, i won't compromise on anything.
compromise is bad. but that's not realistic with a country this size and diversity. both people need to realize that you have to give something to get something and the national interest comes first. >> and what do you suppose could be given or could be received in this latest round of exchanges? we know that top republican and democratic leaders are meeting with the president this week. where is the give and take? where might that be? >> well, i think it's obviously, as the president said, from the democratic standpoint, a balanced proposal that includes increases in taxes for those at the very top of the income scale, the top 1 or 2%, along with reductions in spending that are needed to bring the budget in the direction towards balance and hopefully balance soon. from the republican standpoint, they are very much opposed to tax increases and so they will
have to be some give on that but they want some spending cuts and there ought to be some spending cuts. so i think there's plenty of room if there is good faith and a genuine intention to do it. i think one of the difficulties is speaker boehner is in a tough spot. he's got about a third of his caucus that ran as tea party candidates or tea party supported and part of their agenda was no compromise. you're finding out that you can't govern that way and so he's got to figure out a way to bring them along as he deals with the president on the other side. but i think it can be done. there is good faith and goodwill that make it possible even when there is strong disagreement. >> so then as it pertains to boehner, do you feel like he is receiving greater pressure from the caucuses, as you just described, or greater pressure from the electorate? because in boehner's message on friday, he did say, quote, the american people re-elected a republican majority but at the same time, i guess you can't
have it both ways because we are looking at electorate, a popular vote who wanted the president to be here, they want the two sides to work together? >> i think the election problem helps him in terms of his caucus, that is to say, it's a pretty sobering realization that the program that the advance was not accepted on a national basis and i think there's a reasonable argument that can be made of the activities of those involved that those of the tea party helped retain control of the senate by knocking off republican incumbents in the primaries and nominating candidates in this and the previous election who really just couldn't gain broad popular support. i think in that way it's strengthened and hopefully there will be even more personal contact between them and i think
if both sides keep in mind the fundamental principle that the country comes first, the party comes second, then i think they can get it done. >> former senator george mitchell, thanks so much for your time. thanks for joining us from new york today. appreciate it. >> thanks fredricka. many on the christian right supported mitt romney in this presidential race and opposed same-sex initiatives in their states. well, they lost on all counts. how has the christian right lost it is ability to influence future elections? this country was built by working people.

night. barack obama was re-elected president in part due to his support of reproductive right and his push for health of insurance companies to cover contraceptive coverage. passed many maine, maryland, and the state of washington, measures were passed. cnn.com's religion editor is joining me right now. dan, good to see you. what do these rilts teesults te about the christian right moving forward? >> i think it raises major questions about the politics. mostly when it pertains to guy marriage. i mean, if you could remember where we were eight years ago this week in the 2004 election, the christian right had helped usher george w. bush back into a second term partly by passing 11 ballot initiatives banning guy marriage.
many have since then adopted guy marriage bans amending their constitutions and this week we saw the undoing or at least maybe a changing of the tide in that with three states for the first time adopting guy marriage legalization through voters going to the polls. and so what we saw this week was a lot of christian right leaders, some serious evangelical heavyweights saying that publicly maybe the tide has changed and setting a path forward for the movement. >> president obama, when you look at some of the numbers and we've seen a big break drz down, 51% of the catholic vote despite abortion rights and post-game analysis, what may have most influenced catholics and christian conservatives? >> it seems like catholics were influenced by the economy as any other issue, just like any other americans. but, again, this raises questions about the influence of conservative religious forces on the electorate here.
you've got to remember that during this election, over the course of the last year, the american catholic church staged this very vigorous anti-obama campaign around religious liberty issues and it seems like rank and file catholics weren't listening to their own leaders as much as they were listening to obama's message, the message of the economy and how they wanted to attempted to turn the economy around. and it seemed like the district again called into question the con search tif leaders moving forward. >> so is it fair to say that the christian conservative movement has lost steam? >> it may have but what is really interesting is to watch the next couple of years as the american party regroups. i think what you're going to see is the christian right make a very serious case of the republican party that it could help the party solve its problems with reaching minority voters, especially latinos.
most latinos in this country are catholic or evangelical, the christian right could help them connect with those voters potentially. >> okay. dan, thanks so much. >> thanks. >> you can see more at krchl nn.com/belief. >> all right. two of the top golfers in the world. butting heads on the course and you'd be surprised what they say about their friendship in an exclusive interview with cnn. okay, now here's our holiday gift list. aww, not the mall. well, i'll do the shopping... if you do the shipping. shipping's a hassle. i'll go to the mall. hey. hi. you know, holiday shipping's easy with priority mail flat rate boxes from the postal service. if it fits, it ships anywhere in the country for a low flat rate. yea, i know. oh, you're good. good luck! priority mail flat rate boxes. online pricing starts at $5.15. only from the postal service.

"living golf." >> it's great to see you both together. i think this may be something of a first and the relationship we're seeing a lot more of it in the press as well. can you describe the nature of this relationship between yourselves? >> yeah, it's great. tiger and i have gotten to know one another a little better over the past sort of 12 months. you know, i think we have a lot of things in common. we are both huge sports fans and have a lot of things to talk about and i think just from there, you know, our relationship has evolved. kind of battled each other a few times but i think as rory was alluding to, we have a lot in common. granted, there is an age difference but a relationship will grow over the years but also our competitiveness, i
don't think that's going to change. >> tiger was a huge hero of mine growing up. you know, from watching him win his u.s. amateurs in the '90s to the first master's win in '97 and getting a chance to know him and compete against him is something that i always dreamed of. >> when you look at someone like rory now who has come on in the last five years, what do you see, in particular, that impresses you? >> his athleticism, the confidence, it's going out there and hitting shot for shot. it's fun to play against somebody like that who has a lot of belief in their own ability and goes out there and does it and, you know, as he said, doing it at all levels and this is no different. last time i checked, lowest
score still wins. this new generation of guys who are training, who are athletic, who can play other sports, who grew up playing other sports now coming into golf and, you know, that's what is neat about watching the next generation of guys come out and play and rory is certainly in that mold. >> how desperate are you to get that next major? >> it would be nice. certainly it's been four years since i've won a championship and i've been there with chances over the last four years but i'd like to get another one, no doubt. >> the whole emphasis on 18, it's a question that is asked all the time but i think it's a realistic goal to 18? >> of course. staying and eating properly and staying in shape, i can play for a very long time. i'm looking forward to that opportunity. >> and rory, you've spoke about
not really targeting 14 or 18, what's most important? getting the open championship in the masters and having your own career? is that a logical next career goal for you? >> yes, i guess you could say that. i'm halfway there to the career grand slam. i've won two and i just want to try and get my third and when i get my third, i'll want to try to get my fourth. not many players have done it in the past and it would be great to have my name to that list. >> and here's one more for rory today. the world's number one golfer moved to the top of the european pga tour money list. becoming the next mark zuckerberg. the sister of the facebook ceo dishes on her new reality show and the drama mind tech stardusts.
